I got for free this mesh dish, It mesures 10'2" from rim to rim.
Din't see any like this or its corotor (norstar gold!), as per pics. IMG 20150519 182210 IMG 20150519 182815 IMG 20150519 182831 IMG 20150519 182930 IMG 20150519 182952

Hi lme. I rescued an 8 foot version of the same style antenna in London Ontario last year. It has the same triangular plate as pointed in the below pic IMG 20150519 182815 Also mine has the same configuration as yours with the round backplate ring offset to the left of the mount pipe. The man I got it from thought it was an EchoStar model dish. EchoStar equipment seems to have had an excellent reputation. He wasn't the original owner however. Mine didn't have any identifying marks or labels so its still conjecture on our part. I have seen photos of the same style dish out in Canadas prairie provinces also. Startrak is another Canadian brand that it might be.

Startrak says the label on the actuator and nothing else. I got the hole assembly from an 94 years old man who does not have a good memory.
thank you for reply. Hope I can use it.

Hi beavs,
Did you manage to use your 8' dish?
I'm interested in how you set it up on the azimut with the offset mounting pipe.

Dish alignment is normal. The only thing offsetting the dish to the side does is put a load on the jack (actuator) when your aimed near your due south. Minimizes effects of a worn actuator screw or nut.
I do the same, with a centered dish, by hanging weight on one side of the dish lip.
